Whether you're adding one person, an entire team or an agency that only needs access to a specific part of the platform. There are a few different ways to add your team to the Platform.
First of all, you'll need to ensure you have the correct permissions to invite a Team Member. If you can't see the Team Members section under Settings, contact someone from your team for access.
There are three ways to add Team Members to the Cooperate Platform.
- Invite a Team Member - This will send an email, allowing them to setup their own password. You can invite multiple people at once
- Create a Team Member - This will allow you to set the password and information for them
- Import Team Members from a file - If you're looking to save time and add a large amount of people to the platform, this is for you.
Inviting Team Members
- Select Invite from the top menu
- If applicable, Select the Team to add them to (See: Creating a Team)
- Select their Role (This is an important step. See: Role Permissions)
- Add their First Name, Last Name and Email
- If you want to add more than one user, you can select Add a Team Member
- Click Save.
The Team Members will receive a welcome email with a temporary password and a link to the platform.
(Note: you can edit the welcome email under templates)
They will be asked to reset their password and can edit their profile
